voters have a favorable opinion of mitt romney than president obama, but only by a hair. and in a poll that was taken after the debate, a fox news poll. mitt romney had 52% favorability rating. one point higher than the president's 51%, but 4 points higher than before the debate in denver whereas the president's number didn't budge before and after. in the second round of debating could maybe the numbers flip again since this format leaves both candidates a lot of room to be, remember, not only for what they say, but what they do or where they stand. when vice-president al gore stood too close to then governor george w. bush and looked awkward. >> and, president obama is a few points ahead in a few critical swing states. so, a strong debate at hofstra university out on long island is important for both men, back to you. >> alisyn: it should be really interesting, thanks for the preview, important policy will be interesting to hear them talk about that, including one of the questions that they said was going to be what is the u.s.'s role in the world? >> that's in the third and final de

romney, for goodness sakes, mitt romney edged him in the fox poll on favorability. they've been attacking, the president and the vice president have been doing mostly attacking mostly on character, mostly personal attacks on tear opponents for five or six months. i would submit that has taken a heavy toll on the favorability and even the likability of the democratic ticket. and it looks like they're gonna have to keep it up to keep their base satisfied. but i don't know that that that's going to please swing voters. megyn: yeah. that underscores the problems going into a night like tonight. after a night like last week. chris stirewalt, thank you, sir. >> you bet. megyn: conservative and liberal bloggers are doing battle over a question of bias ahead of tonight's debate. the moderator is martha raddatz, she was chosen by the commission on presidential debates to do this. she has touched off a bit of a debate in the last few days. trace gallagher is tracking that piece of the story. >> martha raddatz is much more apt to be covering war than politics, she stopped covering the white house ba

some of those catholic numbers have tilted more towards governor romney now. >> most polls certainly have changed since that debate including the swing states back to that partisan divide, governor. this was going to be the president that brought everyone together. what happened? is he the most partisan president in recent history? >> i have never remembered one that campaigned more in a partisan fashion nor governed in one. you know, look, in an election, presidents go out every office holder goes out and takes one for the team and does the party cheer. i get that i was with president bush many times in the campaign trail both in the 2000 election and in 2004 re-election. i never heard him go out and regularly blast every democrat all the time. he spoke more about what he was gonna do not what the democrats had done wrong. when you listen to barack obama it's blame blame blame. and it's also, if you look at how he governed, didn't get a single republic vote. when the republicans put something on the table. it doesn't even get brought up to be voted on by the senate. it is a very par
